At least it's a new mold, and a new transformation. Drawing from Cybertron Prime and Star Convoy can't be a bad thing. Big wheels... that's new. Guess I'm glad to see some original ideas applied to ole Prime, even if big wheels is the most original aspect.
Yeah, I'd buy it. May skip the rest of the line, though.

edit: @gothsaurus - glad I'm got the only one getting the super-kiddy vibe.

MONSTER CONVOY LIVES AGAIN!!!! With windows from the Cybertron and Animated Primes.
Though, Predaking's robot mode is mistransformed.

I hope the show keep being as great as it has been until now, but as for me, the toy line dies here.
I will get the ones I'm missing and thats all, I will watch the show if its good.

Though I might get this one for the Star Saber, or save my Money and Just get Dr. Wu's Matrix Sword.

I won't buy it unless it happens in the show, however.

Considering I'm practically done with the Prime toyline (what with the rising prices and sudden rise in pointy-ness), these will be easy passes.
Now if he legitimately combines with another character, then we will talk.
Posted by phase on December 4th, 2012 @ 10:58am CST
Maybe I'll put a Victory Star Saber on him.

That looks like $#!+

Switch the transparent vomit green to transparent blue.
It's really strange though that this Voyager class Optimus has two visible cannons on his body but he only uses one of them as a prosthetic arm replacement, a weapon, with grabbing claws

And I'llbet this mold would have a few more followers were the grey plastic either painted or at least molded a darker color. Yay repaint potential!
Maybe its just that I came out of the MW thread, but anyone else seeing the weaponpods on the side of his vehicle mode trailerbox and seeing themissile pods sitting on Thunderclash's trailer?
I do like that the new missile launchers will plug into the ends of his arms. And there seems to be a lot of unused hinges on his "trailerette" i' wondring if one of them is for wings?

Not really, getting more of a Star Convoy/Battlestars thing here.
Posted by gothsaurus on December 4th, 2012 @ 12:23pm CST
But yeah, the figures are going more-and-more super hero look and proportions. It's like Superman and Doomsday profiles looking at Prime and Megs. Make mine bulky, square, mech-like robots with realistic vehicles. I want them to LOOK like robots, not pro-wrestlers in robot-tights.
For examples of my perfect look, I'm staring at the FansProject Swindle character and the upcoming Fallen tanks. Good, blocky, G1-but-improved style, clearly mech'ed out robots... and no "superhero figure" look.
Does anyone else see this thing with the superhero style?
Posted by Overcracker on December 4th, 2012 @ 12:25pm CST
I like the bulk, and it looks like the trailer turns into something other than just a short trailer thing.
He's going on the Buy list.

Galaxy Convoy/Cybertron Optimus Prime

That said, MakeToys nailed all the robot modes to their Devastator much better than the Hercules version, I thought. They're a great example of my dream aesthetic as well. Detailed, good proportion, huge nods to G1, posable, big blocky legs (and the foot tilt is always appreciated).
But yeah, keeping the conversation on track... This Prime looks fun, but definitely looks like the main toy line is swinging toward little kids instead of mature viewers. Odd, since the CGI Prime cartoon comes off a pretty mature... especially with people dying and all. I'm curious to see if it swings to being more kid-cartoon as well when the beasts show up. Kinda like all the daft Looney-Tune style gags in the 3rd season of Beast Wars. Groan.

I'm liking where they're going with this, but i think it needs work. Im hoping the grey sections form a wing pack for prime and/or a shield like his kreo version
Comparing commander Predaking with his voyager though, it is quite clear how much paint is missing from the larger figure...

QFT. I actually really like that this is a new mold and not just a spikey version of the PRiD Voyager Prime. However, the green is throwing me off a bit. I agree that if the green parts were blue (like the show) then this guy would be pretty awesome.
Who knows, maybe he'll have green on him when/if he gets upgraded in Season 3? I'm betting he does, but we'll see about the colors...

The cyberverse I dont really care about but they dont look too bad.

Also, what's with that green? Does the story reintroduce that synthetic energon?
Predaking is growing on me with a transformation similar to Grimlock's but I'm still not convinced Beast Wars recycled limbs syndrome is a good look.

I'm also not getting why people are hating on the wheel kibble on his back, it kinda reminds me of the WFC Optimus which everyone seems to love.
Anyway, I really like the look of it. From these pictures it looks more like a large deluxe than a voyager but it could just be he's wide in bot mode and not especially tall looking. Or that he's just well proportioned and it gives the allusion of being smaller than it really is. I'll admit, the green windows and sword look a little strange but I'm not gonna cry about it as I think it gives it a better look overall by clashing with the red and blue. I also don't think it looks all that childish, at least not when put next to the cyberverse version anyway. Now that one really looks like the rescue bots Prime but still doesn't look too bad.
I don't know if I like that Predaking or not though. The robot itself with the wings looks ok but I don't like the dragon head kibble, or at least not how it's displayed in that picture. I also hope it's mistransformed in beast mode and that the dragon head can somehow go over the robot head. Well it doesn't really matter though as I don't have any commander class figures from this line anyway and the voyager Predaking looks amazing and there's still the larger version to look forward to.

I'd like a nearly all purple-repaint of him too, looking at the beast mode.
The Primes, I'll pass on, but the Star Saber is pretty nice, if it was blue.
